Zenployers in Nebraska
Nebraska Workers' Compensation
Nebraska is known for its rolling plains and endless rivers. However, the Cornhusker State offers much more, and is known for its many small businesses and corporate headquarters.
Nebraska’s business industry has been on the rise the past few years. With its beautiful rivers and many farm fields Nebraska is a great place for business small and large. Major Nebraska industries include Agribusiness and Food Processing, Biosciences, Manufacturing, Financial Services, and IT and Data Services. Cabela’s, Union Pacific Railroad, Werner Enterprises, and TD Ameritrade all have their headquarters in Nebraska.
Small businesses in Nebraska employ more than 400,000 people. This accounts for almost 47% of the state’s private workforce, and with more than 21,700 workplace injuries and 44 fatal injuries across all industries in 2018, small businesses need to make sure they have workers’ compensation insurance coverage.
Large businesses in Nebraska also self-insure and set aside funds that are dedicated to workers’ comp. Zenployers is also a perfect match for this as well.
WC OverviewNebraska has a no-fault system workers’ compensations system. That means it doesn’t matter if an employee caused their own injury by being careless. If they are otherwise eligible, they are entitled to benefits. However, there are some exceptions.
- Federal Employees
- Railroad Employees
- Independent Contractor
- Domestic Workers
- Doctors’ visits
- Hospital bills
- Prosthetic devices
WC PayoutsYour worker’s comp insurance must pay for your employee’s medical treatment from day one for any work-related injury. Work-related illnesses are also covered under workers’ compensation law. Illnesses or conditions caused by exposure to harmful conditions (such as mold) or products (such as caustic chemicals) are all covered. If your employees are injured in this way at work in Nebraska, they may be entitled to benefits under workers’ compensation law.
